A Patterned Blouse with Neutrals {Style Perspectives}

This entry is part 4 of 14 in the series Style Perspectives

It’s week four of the Style Perspectives where 14 bloggers each pick a look that defines their personal style. The featured blogger on the Blended Blog showcases her signature style (the prompt for that day) and then the other bloggers (on their personal blogs) show how they interpret it. Be sure to stop by the Blended Blog to see the featured lady.

Did you see the white pants look last week? Here’s a quick recap. I love how each person expressed their individual personality and how different everyone looked.STYLEPerspectivesAWrap_Week03

If you’re a blogger join us by linking up on the Blended Blog to show us how you would wear the prompt! Remember that even if you don’t blog you can join in by using the hashtag #theblendedblogstyle on social media.

This week Abbie of Grumbling Grace is featuring a patterned blouse with neutrals. Check out her looks here.
I took an inventory of my patterned tops and although I have floral, gingham and polka dots, the overwhelming amount of patterns is stripes. I love stripes!! I apparently do not love geometric or aztec because I have NONE of those.
My neutral was denim (the ULTIMATE neutral, right?!!) but I added a pop of red in my shoes (gotta have a little fun!). My first look is a long sleeved boat-neck Old Navy top. Although it’s spring here (oh the pollen!!) it was a little cool this morning and this top is perfect for the temps. I have another one just like it in red and cream.long striped
It’s a bit short however so on a day where I needed a little more coverage, this swing top would be perfect. It’s a little longer and very flowy and I would be able to reach my arms overhead to my heart’s content, without fear of exposing my belly!

When the weather warms up a bit more, I have a short sleeved option. I actually have this same top in pink which I received as a hand-me-down. The blue Ralph Lauren tee was found at TJMaxx.

 So here are my three striped looks: long sleeved, medium sleeved, short sleeved. stro[ed top collage marked

  1. I like you am a stripes and polka dot girl! Love that grey one on you, so cute! 🙂

  2. Funny, but I do associate stripes with you and polka dots with Sarah C. And your new swing dresses are striped, if I am remembering correctly. You wear them well. I think I may have missed the boat…so what’s new…on the whole patterned thing. I took the word “patterned” to be interchangeable with print. Oh, well. You wear your stripes so well, my friend.

    1. Yeah, I think you’re right but I looked in my closet and only had one print top and I didn’t want to use it. So I had to use some poetic license. Yes, the dresses are striped too! Good memory! I’ll share a secret with you…I bought two more striped shirts yesterday!! Shhhh.
